Racial Justice

From access to housing, employment, wealth generation, healthcare access and outcomes, education, and criminal justice – your organization has a role to play in promoting racial justice. Our assessment will help identify areas of opportunity when it comes to racial equity from a holistic perspective.

From 1619 to present, there have been policies, laws, and norms that have been based on racial and ethnic identify, from Jim Crow laws to redlining. Despite some strides and perceived progress, racial injustice and discrimination continue to inform policies, programs, and social attitudes that disproportionately affect our Black colleagues and colleagues of color. It is important that organizations commit to racial equity, increase their levels of awareness, and create actions to create a more inclusive culture. 
We are committed to providing research, resources and tools to understand how our past continues to shape our present, and what you can do within your organization to combat the inequities, disparities and policies that continue to impact your colleagues of color.
